Directed by Jan Hrebejk

Czech Republic 2013 92 mins.

A picture-perfect wedding in the Czech countryside takes an unwelcome turn when a black-clad figure crashes the celebration. The mysterious outsider claims to be an old friend of the groom but arrives bearing a gift that threatens to mar the festivities. The third chapter in a loosely constituted trilogy about suppressed guilt—following Kawasaki’s Rose (2009) and Innocence (2011)—Hrebejk’s film is a meditation on the (im)possibility of forgiveness.
